DIY Crepe Paper Wrapped Wire Spring and Easter Centerpiece

Welcome the spring season and Easter holiday with an easy to make inexpensive crepe paper wrapped floral wire centerpiece. It's shaped like an egg and elegantly topped and grounded with colorful pansies.  And it's the perfect way to decorate for any spring get-together.  And guess what? You can make this adorable centerpiece for under five dollars! And that makes for a huge conversation starter at any spring celebration! Imagine the design possibilities!

Materials used:
Crepe paper streamer rolls  2 for $1 (dollar store) 
Floral wire - 16 gauge pkg.  $1.99
Mod Podge glue
Paint brush
Pansies (faux)
Cardboard
Hot glue gun
Bowl for shaping stems

Begin by dabbing mod podge on the end of a strip of crepe paper and wrapping it around floral wire, starting at the tip. 

The entire length of the wire has to be covered with crepe paper several times, so I found it easy to first dip a brush into mod podge and brush it off on the wire while wrapping the crepe paper around.

 Once the wire is covered, brush the paper with the glue and continue wrapping to the end and back again. The crepe paper is very forgiving. You can thicken the stems with the paper by folding  and crunching the paper together as you wrap.  You will need to wrapped the wire several times to make a thick stem.  Be careful not to soak the paper with mod podge or it will tear easily. If that happens, just seal the end with glue and start again from there.  Wrap eight stems.


Once satisfied with the thickness of the stems, let dry completely.  Then arrange in a clockwise position. I originally cut out a two inch cardboard circle and hot glued the stems in place. 



Then I placed a bowl on top and shape the wire over and up the bowl (sorry I didn't take a picture of this.)  I removed the bowl and hot glued the stem tips together, one at a time, clockwise. 
Once the hot glue cooled, I cut off the cardboard between the stems (I didn't like how it looked) and left a small round portion on the bottom. Then wrapped more crepe paper around each stem where the cardboard showed. I also glued strips of crepe paper around and between where the top stems came together.  


And finally, arrange pansies on top and bottom for a sophisticated decorative spring look!


Simply lovely!

Happy Spring Crafting!
